"House prices, one of the UK's principal consumer confidence supports, have come under Brexit pressure. The Royal Institute of Surveyors confirmed yesterday that its members were reporting falling activity levels in all regions, with July prices growing at their slowest pace in three years, a sharp drop in sales and a record low number of properties being advertised. A survey of over 300 agents also suggests they expect key London prices to fall over the next year. This news, along with the sharp reversal in oil prices spurred by a reported spike in US crude inventories on the back of expanded production from Saudi Arabia, means equities in London will have a soft opening this morning, with the FTSE-100 seen down around 25 points in early trading. The US markets, not surprising, saw energy stocks lead the falls overnight; while continuing to trade in a narrow range, all principal indices closed modestly negative in the absence of other significant corporate or macroeconomic news. In Asia, the Nikkei was closed for Mountain Day public holiday, leaving the Chinese markets in Hong Kong and Shanghai to put in fractional gains, while the commodity-exposed ASX fell back quite sharply. UK investors will be keen to see this morning's Council of Mortgage Lenders arrears and repossessions report, while corporates expected to report half-yearly figures include Caledonia Mining Corp. (CMCL.L), Glencore (GLEN.L), Hastings Group (HSTG.L), Old Mutual (OML.L) and TUI (TUI.L)." - Barry Gibb, Research Analyst

The Slide Rule
12 Jan 17
What is The Slide Rule? The Slide Rule has been designed to dramatically simplify the identification of the best companies in the UK small/mid-cap sector by making a quantitative assessment of the relative potential of each company. At its core, The Slide Rule aims to identify those companies that create genuine shareholder value through strong returns on capital and solid growth, but also present a value opportunity with the potential tailwind of earnings momentum. Companies are assessed within a Quality, Value, Growth and Momentum (QVGM) framework.

N+1 Singer - Small-cap quantitative research - New quality style screen + 11 quality focus stocks
09 Feb 17
We introduce our fourth and final style screen representing “quality”. This screens for stocks with the best combination of high returns on capital/equity, EBIT margins and operating cash-flow conversion rates. These criteria should help us monitor how strong underlying returns translate into share price performance over time and under varying market conditions. The screen selects the “best” 25 stocks from our universe of just over 500 stocks and, as usual, we focus on a shorter list of stocks we cover or otherwise know and believe to be particularly interesting. We provide brief investment summaries on these focus stocks on pages 4 – 9. We will monitor performance and refresh the screen in approximately 3-4 months time.
